Tom Brady fans have often wondered if he plans to play until he’s 50, which is certainly not the norm in the NFL. He’s 44 right now.

Well, Brady thinks he can do it. He’s not so sure about his wife, Gisele Bundchen, though.

In a new episode of Tampa Bay’s “Tommy & Gronky” show, Brady and the Buccaneers’ Rob Gronkowski discuss the idea.

“Can Tom Brady play until 50 years old?” Gronkowski says.

Brady responds, “I don’t find it so difficult… so I feel like I can play then glide into retirement… I think I can. It’s a ‘yes.’”

“Will Gisele let Tom play until 50? That’s the real question,” Gronkowski adds.

“That’s a way better question,” Brady replies, laughing. “That was of course, no, that answer.”

Brady followed that up, saying, “I’m just kidding. I’m sorry baby, I love you. You would let me. You would let me doing anything as long as I’m happy.”
